Chilis Review and Giveaway!




I Love Chili's. It is one of our top choices in town when we want to go out to dinner. So, I was super excited when Chili's offered us a $50 gift card to eat out there and write a review!

Chili's opened as a fun Dallas burger joint with a loyalty to happy hour and blue jeans back in 1975. They prided themselves on their humble beginnings, following a devotion to great food, warm hospitality and community spirit. Today, with restaurants all over the world, They continue to cook up the best in casual fare, offering the same genuine service they did way back when.


We decided to go out the other night, and were not disappointed! We were greeted warmly at the door and seated quickly. We ordered the bottomless chips and salsa to start as well as sodas. We love the chips and salsa! We usually only eat one tray, but then ask for a refill to go so we can enjoy them at home the next day!

It was a hard decision deciding what to get, as it always is for me there... there are so many things that sound good! I ended up ordering the fajita trio that had steak, chicken and shrimp. Josh ordered the buffalo chicken fajitas.

The food was great! Even Jack loved the chicken! I have never had a meal at Chili's that I didn't like. And the portions are always enough for me to have leftovers. I especially love their big mouth burgers! (Those are generally our normal meal from there!)

Did you know you can even sign up for their email club and they will send you a coupon for a free chips and queso? True! Sign up here! I get their newsletter and they are always sending special offers and stuff... definitely worth it!
